    This massive Tanzanite has a significant weight of just over 72 carats. Finding stones of this size and caliber are becoming more difficult. It displays the quintessential pleochroism habit so associated with this variety. The gem possesses the richly saturated sought after blue-violet coloration. This superb stone features a rectangular cushion cut with modified brilliant faceting. Overall, this striking stone is in great condition and eye-clean, despite one nick on the pavilion. Recently considered a December birthstone, this amazing gemstone is a most worthy present for any occasion. It is also accompanied by an EGL USA report.
